In 2017 UK DJ Joe Farr told me about his first gig. “The first time that I took half a pill.”
Hoj remisced with me about his first gig in a Californian coffeeshop in 1999. He was 21, so just old enough to drink. To make sure that the vinyl didn’t skip, he wiped each one of them with an old vinyl brush.
After two spontaneous run-ins it was time to interview Dutch DJ David Leese about his first gig. He could play his own records in a “not too hectic environment.”
In April 2017 I interviewed Swedish techno-DJ and producer Christian Smith about his debut. “People thought I had played too many ‘big’ tracks.”
In December 2017 I had the opportunity to interview the Indian 32Stitches about his first gig. He remembers it very well: “It was an experiment that ended up flooding the place with people.”
The second time we ran into each other was during ADE 2015. Seghment (UK) I talked for hours. In 2016 I interviewed him about his first gig. “Everyone and no-one were there.”
